Last night, “Anything Goes” was brought to life in the auditorium. Students have been working on this year’s musical production since the end of January, and there will be another production tonight as well as tomorrow afternoon.
“The show is about three love stories all intertwined. Reno Sweeney (Avery Graham) is in love with Billy Crocker (Parker Irwin), who has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt (Melody Simms), but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Christian Jones),” junior Parker Irwin said.
The musical is considered a classic. The songs were written by composer Cole Porter, who has composed music for more than 30 musicals.
“Every show is so different in its own way. Last year, we did a show that wasn’t really considered a classic, but this year ‘Anything Goes’ is known by people who don’t know about anything theatre-related,” junior Kenna Anderson said.
The audience is in for a whirlwind of emotions.
“Lots of laughs, awkward moments, and pure fun. This show is so entertaining. It is definitely one you don’t want to miss,” Irwin said.
The theatre program has put months of work into making this production great, and they could not wait to show the audience.
“I am most excited for the audience to see all the hard work that has been put into the show,” Anderson said.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for students, and can be purchased online, at the door, or in the music department office.
